More About the Author

New York Times bestselling author Ruthie Knox writes contemporary romance that's sexy, witty, and angsty--sometimes all three at once. After training to be a British historian, she became an academic editor instead. Then she got really deeply into knitting, as one does, followed by motherhood and romance novel writing.

Her debut novel, Ride with Me, is probably the only existing cross-country bicycling love story. She followed it up with About Last Night, a London-set romance whose hero has the unlikely name of Neville, and then Room at the Inn, a Christmas novella--both of which were finalists for the Romance Writers of America's RITA Award. Her four-book series about the Clark family of Camelot, Ohio, has won accolades for its fresh, funny portrayal of small-town Midwestern life. She also writes New Adult romance as Robin York.

Ruthie moonlights as a mother, Tweets incessantly, and bakes a mean focaccia.

Content: Explicit sex, various cuss words and profanity.

Just barely 3 stars. Sorry to say, I liked Ruthie Knox's first book MUCH better: Ride with Me: A Loveswept Contemporary Romance. This book started off superbly, but in the end I found it absurdly melodramatic, with wildly shifting character portrayals, concluding with ridiculously improbable plot contortions.

But still okay. Knox writes well, with sexy love scenes, tender moments and flowing dialogue. I really liked the beginning of this book. It was the best part, up through the first third of the book. I loved how sexy and tender Nev was with his Mary Catherine.

The 3rd person POV shifted around from Nev to Cath, which I appreciate.

Character flaws: In a romance novel, I need to sympathize with and/or admire the hero and heroine. At first I liked Mary Catherine a lot -- someone I would want to hang with. But by the end, she sympathized too much with herself, holding her old wounds close, and glorifying her tragic past with tattoos. She blamed Nev (aka City) for not believing in her, when SHE had been the one to replace real intimacy with sex. For 75% of the book, she kept secrets from her lover, never revealing her horribly sad past, even though he asked. Instead, she replaced emotional bonding with sex. Lots and lots of sex.

Meanwhile, I liked Nev, but halfway through, he slipped out of character. At first, he seemed strong yet tender, and totally devoted to Cath. Then, he became a momma's boy and a wuss. The worst was when he...


...used Cath to get a promotion at work.

This ARC I received from a contest sponsored by Romance @ Random and Ruthie Knox. It was downloaded from Kindle @ NetGalley.

This novel gives us a very unlikely Hero and Heroine. Catherine Marie Talarico is an asst. curator at Victoria and Albert Museum, and is working on an exhibit tracing the history of Hand Knitting. She has moved to London after deciding to start over with her life. She is known, in her head, as New Cath. Bad Cath, her previous life, had a series of pitfalls, heartache and even a short arrest. She has chronicled these mishaps with tattoos of various colors and sizes, to always remind her of these mistakes, and to help her not to repeat the past. She takes a train, every morning to her job, and realizes after sitting every day, there are a series of people that ride with her so she decides to name them. Pigeon Man is the first we meet, but there are several more, including our Hero...City Boy.
City Boy, is a tall, very good lucking blonde , to Cath he is" Prince Charming in a suit." In truth, he is a very wealthy Londoner, very unhappy as a banker in his family's business. He would like nothing more than to lose the suit for a pair of well worn jeans, and a paint splattered t-shirt. His name is Neville Chamberlain, preferring to be called Nev.

Cath is suckered into joining her friend for a blind date, which is a disaster as she had expected. She resorts to wine to dull her senses and get her through the night. The drink, K-12, is offered, after she sobs over the classic Patsy Cline song, Crazy. It brings back some of the good memories she had before she was Bad Cath. The K-12 was the last thing she remembers! She wakes up in a strangers bed, (guess who?) realizing she has taken "a pretty catastrophic fall off the reform wagon!

I do not read a lot of contemporary romance. I'm starting to ask myself why that is. The past few that I have read I have absolutely LOVED! Ruthie is a new author for me and I am looking forward to reading more of her work. Her characters were very lifelike. The pace of the book flowed well. The situations that Nev and Cath were in are also realistic. All of the emotions that Cath and Nev go through are genuine. I loved them as a couple. Opposites attract are so much fun to read.

I'm not sure which character contrast that I liked more, New Cath and Old Cath aka Good Cath and Bad Cath, or City and Nev. I do know that reading them this way added personality to the tale. Cath is far from your perfect lead female. She has made mistakes and she continuously punishes herself for these mistakes. She has hurt others and hurt herself due to her mistakes.
Cath has made a promise to herself, no more mistakes, but how does one resist the man who comes courting with junk food.

Nev is Cath's newest mistake. Or at least that is how she sees it. Nev sees Cath as the greatest thing to have ever happened to him. Early on he figures out that Cath is not going to be an easy catch. He becomes content with their whatevership early on, knowing that it is just a matter of time before she lets him in. Nev is such an incredibly likeable lead male. His personality and his wicked smile, dimple included are so very sexy.

Nev's family, oh they are an interesting bunch and Cath's issues from her past brought the mild conflict to the book. Nev's family and their manipulations of his life are applauding while highly entertaining. The conflict in this book is a mild one, but one that had some difficulties for the couple to get through. I couldn't put About Last Night down.
